Harper Grey Beards – 2016 One to One Literacy Society Spelling Bee Champions

Harper Grey was once again a proud sponsor and participant in One to One Literacy Society’s annual corporate spelling bee challenge and fundraiser. We are pleased to announced that the Harper Grey Beards were the champions at the 11th Annual Spelling Bee beating out the other teams including various law firms, Judges of the Provincial Court, Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal.

One to One Literacy Society’s Annual Spelling Bee is a fundraising event which raises money to support children’s literacy in the greater Vancouver area. This year the society raised $52,000 – an increase of more than $12,000 over the last year, making it One to One’s most successful Spelling Bee ever. The funds raised will ensure continued support to 84 schools, and support growth to 12 wait-listed schools. It will also train volunteer tutors and expand the program across British Columbia. The event was attended by lawyers, accountants, educators, Supreme Court and Court of Appeal judges, financial advisers, and other professionals.

Congratulations to the Harper Grey Beards – Barbara Norell, Djuna Field, Jeremy Shragge, JoAnne Barnum, Karen Douglas, Paul Saunders, and Siobhan Sams.
